Totals                     11589   10397           13136

September is the best month so far this year for closed single family homes.  This is the only column with actual numbers you can count on.

New listings can be relisted as new.  Some agents do this so it does not look like it has been on the market very long.

Contract accepted may not end up closing because of home inspection issues or attorney review items could not be satisfactory negotiated.  They might be reactivated and then go contract pending again.  So you can’t count on these numbers.

At the end of each month I will compare to 2019 and 2018 so you can get an idea of how this year is going compared to those years.
